KSrelief launches public campaign in Saudi Arabia to raise funds for Pakistan flood victims
The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center launched a public campaign in Saudi Arabia on Monday to raise funds for those affected by devastating floods in Pakistan.
People in the Kingdom can donate via KSrelief’s “Sahem” platform, Saudi Press Agency reported.
KSrelief’s supervisor general Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah said the center was organizing the campaign to support flood victims in Pakistan and it reflected the humanitarian role played by the Kingdom to help the needy around the world.
He added that the initiative confirmed the depth of relations between the Kingdom and Pakistan.
Al-Rabeeah urged people to donate to the good cause by using the “Sahem” app or website or to deposit money in one of the center’s bank accounts at a number of Saudi banks. He added that no administrative expenses will be deducted from donations.
Floods from record monsoon rains and glacial melt in mountainous north Pakistan have affected 33 million people and killed almost 1,400, washing away homes, roads, railways, livestock and crops, in damage estimated at $30 billion.
